Social Media Participation Guidelines
We encourage your comments on Campbell County Health's blog and social
media sites, and hope you will join the conversation.
We welcome and encourage comments to Campbell County Health-sponsored sites,
such as the
Health Connect Blog,
Website online feedback form or social media sites (CCH Facebook;
YouTube). To promote respectful discussion within this forum, we request that
you be courteous and productive and avoid comments that are profane, obscene,
offensive, sexually explicit, inappropriate, inflammatory or otherwise
objectionable. Posts often foster debate of an issue; users are to engage
in such exchanges with mutual respect for others’ opinions.
We can’t respond to every comment, particularly those that deal with
individual medical cases and issues. To protect patient privacy and ensure
comments are appropriate for all audiences, comments made to the blog
will not appear within the blog until they have been reviewed by an internal
moderator and approved to post.
Social media and the blog is not monitored on a 24-hour basis. Comments
posted to the blog after 4 pm MT may take approximately 12 hours to appear.
Comments posted on the weekend may be approved on the next full business
day. Comments posted to social media may not receive an answer until the
next business day if posted after regular business hours or on weekends.
Comments may be edited to preserve readability for other users. Those
comments that are off-topic or clearly promoting a commercial product
won’t make the cut.
Please remember that when you post a comment to a blog or on any social
media site, it is published for the world to see, without limitation or
protection of any kind. For your own privacy and that of your family,
you should consider carefully how much detailed personal medical information
linked to your name you want to share, with the understanding that this
information may be linked to your name and published on the Internet.
That was the easy-to-read version; here it is in legal terms:
By posting any comments, posts or other material on Campbell County Health-sponsored
blogs or other social media platforms, you give CCH the irrevocable right
to reproduce, distribute, publish, display, edit, modify, create derivative
works from, and otherwise use your submission for any purpose in any form
and on any media. You also agree that you will not:
- Post material that infringes on the rights of any third party, including
intellectual property, privacy or publicity rights.
- Post material that is unlawful, obscene, defamatory, threatening, harassing,
abusive, slanderous, hateful, or embarrassing to any other person or entity
as determined by CCH in its sole discretion.
- Post phone numbers or email addresses of yourself or any other individual
or entity in the body of your comment — you cannot assume the good
intentions of everyone who reads them.
- Post advertisements or solicitations of business.
- Post chain letters or pyramid schemes.
- Impersonate another person.
- Allow any other person or entity to use your identification for posting
or viewing comments.
- Post the same note more than once or “spam.”
CCH reserves the right (but is not obligated) to do any or all of the following:
- Remove communications that are abusive, illegal or disruptive, or that
otherwise fail to conform to these Terms and Conditions.
- Terminate a user’s access to the blog feature upon any breach of
these Terms and Conditions. We may affect such bans by refusing posts
from specific email addresses or IP addresses, or through other means
- Edit or delete any communications posted on the blog feature, regardless
of whether such communications violate these standards.
Finally, you agree that you will indemnify and hold harmless Campbell County
Health, its affiliates, directors, officers, employees, successors and
assigns against any damages, losses, liabilities, judgments, causes of
action, costs or expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees
and costs) arising out of a claim by a third party relating to any material
you have posted on CCH-sponsored sites.
